BRAIN- BRAIN TRANSFER

USE AGILE TO ALIGN MINDS

ABOUT THE EVENT

A warm welcome to our first event where we will talk about agile and lean work methods.

Agile methods are starting to spread outside the IT-core of organisations. The journey to an agile organisation is trilling, but also filled with challenges. Most of these challenges are similar between organisations – we have a lot to learn from each other when it comes to implementation of an agile mind set.

This is one of the reasons we have created The Agile Network of Southern Sweden: To allow interested, curious and driven people to exchange experiences and to further develop their work methods within agile and lean. We believe that we are at the beginning of a work-method revolution that is more needed than ever, due to the fast changes within digitalisation and global competition. And the best way to develop these skills is together, across organisations.

Again, join us and a warm welcome to our first event! Looking forward to seeing you on the 3rd of April in Helsingborg!

Best Regards Io and Tony

BRAIN-BRAIN TRANSFER – Use Agile to align minds

A product gains its value when it is used by the end consumer. For this to happen, the mind of the consumer needs to be engaged in the product. However good a product is, if it does not appeal to the consumer, it will not be a success. Engagement of the mind is equally essential when constructing a product, but here, it is the minds of the designers that are involved. You could thus say that value is created when the minds of designers have, through the product, reached the minds of the consumers. This truth is made visible in agile methods, where communication between developers, intermediaries and consumers are part of the agenda. Even so, awareness of the importance of understanding the minds of consumers is often lacking. In this workshop, we will discuss methods to increase this awareness and we will try out tools that facilitate reflection on the variability in modes of thinking.
